Specialized Searches help you focus your search with prompts for using Emtree, the controlled vocabulary and suggestions for relevant subheadings.
Quick Search is the default and provides a template for ANDing and ORing terms with pull-down menus for selecting fields (e.g., all fields, author, title, etc.).
PICO provides a template (population, intervention, comparison, outcome) with links to Emtree, a controlled vocabulary.
PV Wizard (Pharmacovigilance Wizard) is a drug monitoring-focused search.
Medical device searches provide prompts for searches of adverse device effect, clinical trials, device comparison, and device economics.
An Advanced search lets you construct a complex search query with commonly used limits.
Drug, Disease, and Device options let your construct an advanced search with subject-specific options.
An Article search is useful for finding a specific article and an Author search helps identify an author’s full name and publications.
A good place to start is with a Quick Search, which allows for keywords and also suggests terms from Emtree.
